Chester Pop Up shops

15 July 2021

A STRING of small, "unique" businesses will have the chance to showcase their products in Chester city centre over the coming months.

The 'Chester Pop Up' shop is located in the Grade II-listed arcade in St Michael's Row and is designed to provide local businesses with an opportunity to be part of the high street.

The line-up includes Modern Art Chester, Dawn Woodcock Jones, collaborating with Sam Bull, and Plant Face.

Modern Art Chester will be the first business popping up in the city centre location.

It will be opening the doors on July 19 for three weeks and will offer a range of contemporary artwork.

Modern Art Chester focuses on helping artists with limited space to sell or exhibit their work.

On August 9, Dawn Woodcock Jones and By Sam Bull will be collaborating in the space.

Collectively, the artists aim to fill their pop up shop with an array of stationery items and gifts ranging from tea towels to tote bags, all designed in house using fun patterns.

Plant Face, who appeared at the pop up store last year, returns for four weeks from August 30.
